Nissan is voluntarily recalling certain 2016 Nissan Frontier trucks for a starter terminal issue which may lead to a fire.
Approximately 1,680 Nissan Frontiers with a 4.0-liter engine are effected. The trucks were produced at Nissan’s assembly plant in Canton, Miss., between Feb. 29 and March 7, 2016. The trucks were sold in the U.S. and Canada.
Nissan reports that a starter motor wire harness on the effected trucks must be inspected and repositioned if necessary. If left uncorrected, the starter motor wire harness may touch the starter heat shield, which can lead to an electrical short and possibly a fire.
Nissan will notify effected truck owners. Dealers will inspect and reposition the starter wire harness, if required, at no cost. The recall is expected to begin this month. For more information, contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY1-800-424-9153), or visit www.safercar.gov.
